Cambridge IGCSE is a fantastic college readiness program, and it is just breaking into the US market. Their mathematics curriculum, for 9th and 10th grade students, is absolutely wonderful.
The idea is this: Students with a truly solid foundation will be well prepared to take on future challenges, of any sort. It is 180 degrees different from how we approach things here in the US. We’re famously, “A mile wide and an inch deep.” Cambridge IGCSE offers a different approach. Here are the handful of key ideas, know them intimately well, learn how to think critical and apply understanding creatively, and you’ll be well equipped.
I have been teaching the Cambridge IGCSE program for the past 7 years, in my 8th year now. In that time I’ve really changed how I teach math, regardless of the curriculum and standards. Those changes have brought about fantastic results for students. It is, in fact, the single largest influence shaping what it is I share here on my podcast, and on my website.
